Wearin ‘O the Green So Girls Can Play On the Green

The Michigan Women’s Golf Association (MWGA) , one of the leading women’s golf organizations in both the state and the nation, is hosting a St. Patrick’s Day fundraiser for their Junior Girls Golf Program.  If you want to avoid the crowds, the drunken Guiness-Fests and other traditional Irish Bacchanalia at area bars and pubs, you can have fun here while supporting a good cause! The MWGA St. Patrick’s Day Potluck Party will include food, fun, friends and a fabulous location all for a fine cause. Grab your friends, girlfriend, boyfriend, wife, husband, mother, father, sister, brother, cousins; anyone over 21 who likes a good time in a user-friendly environment. As an added bonus, you will also be able to enjoy the wonderful Michigan Golf Hall of Fame golf memorabilia.

Expenses include an LPGA teaching pro, range balls, course fees, golf clubs and healthy snacks. In 2011 a beginners program for 32 girls (ages 7-14) was provided and a junior league for 17 girls and boys (ages 10-15). To keep the program alive, MWGA needs your support.
